I have used the html link codes (a href code which I have used many times on web pages) but when I click on the banner, it goes to the banner website, not the story page. ?????

I make banners from scratch in photoshop.

I really really , really wanna offer some pointers here, but don't wanna sound as OCD as I actually am.

These banner sites are ok, and I understand the normal lushie does not use the programs I do. But I have some tips, SERIOUSLY have some tips .

Just to help in the execution of these "banners".

Respond if you want them, tell me to Eff off otherwise :) bunny

This is a very useful resource that many members would love to know about. I believe it deserves a sticky so that it wont fall out of view.

Thanks to DM for his link. That will give me all the help I need!

I use mostly online banner makers, since I lost my pirated copy of Photoshop. If anyone has tips on using Gimp, let me know.

I actually do something even more simple than all of that.

I use an online pic-editor called iPiccy and upload the image I want.

You can change the colors, make it cartoonish, lots of options, and for fonts, you can choose from a whole list they have, and you can place it where you want it, versus "in line" like some banner sites have them.

After I'm satisfied with the way my pic looks, I just upload it to my photobucket account, and use the "imbed image" and "create link" buttons in the Edit Signature section ... I made every single one of my banners that way, and I wasn't limited by some pre-written program.

I totally agree. thumbup Can we pretty please get this "stickied?"

Every time I've changed the banner in my signature, I've come to find this thread because I never remember the process. Also, the sites that offer the free banners are great as well.
